I don't understand.

I can't see an option in the sitemap generation to automatically include an index page, there are only Nodes, Threads and Users. So it appears any other pages would need to be added manually in the Extra Sitemap URL box.

At least this is what happens with my sitemap.

That's correct. The index page is included automatically in the sitemap, e.g. https://xenforo.com/community is automatically included in the sitemap for this site.

Other than that, you would need to add any other URLs to the Extra Sitemap URL box.

Thanks, after downloading the sitemap I see that is the case.

I just looked at the available options of nodes, forums and users and assumed only those were included.

Hello I added my root homepage as extra url in the box and it was not added to the sitemap.
mysite.com/

Xenforo is installed on mysite.com/forum/

Are only extra urls like /forum possible ?

Yes, only URLs within the XenForo install are allowed. (Sitemap XML files can't have URLs in them outside of the directory they're served from.)

mysite.com/

Xenforo is installed on mysite.com/forum/

Are only extra urls like /forum possible ?
Sorry to bring this up again. When I was on VB with VBSeo, we had a sitemap where it was possible to have our homepage included.
Any chance the xenforo sitemap will add this option in future?
I heard it would not be idea to not have my homepage included in sitemap.

How are others handling this?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for your reply Brogan. Thing is, I do not want to use a portal add-on. I am not a friend of having to many add-ons.

The VBSeo sitemap was coded so that it was possible to add extra urls alhtough even they were not in the root where the forum software was installed.
Question is, any chance that we can get such a sitemap option from Xenforo?
